    WP Critique

    I have a video that I'm uploading onto youtube, but it maybe too long for people to watch so I'm going to post some pix to start and then I'll come back and add the video.

    Please feel free to critique both me and Riley, but also remember he's only two years old so please be fair to him and take his age into consideration...that is also why some of my cues are really exaggerated...

    Hopefully these pix are good enough.

    I can't get them to upload. Well, except this one. I'll come back with the video when it's finished uploading.

    I hope this file isn't too long. I'm not sure what length I should have cut it down too....

    I don't know what I'm doing... paste this?

    Maybe it's just me...but the lope looks off when he was going clockwise
    As for critique for you...it looks like you are leaning back too far...you're leaning backwards and your legs are out almost like you're going to fall backwards (best way I can describe it)

    Riley is soooooo adorable! He's such a good boy! What breed is he? His tail is up (not really...just kinda up a bit) when he moves. If you find him missing....it wasn't me I swear. It was....it was....it was Mike!! Yeah Mike stole Riley

    Omigosh! I forgot to mention that he seems... I don't know, broken in that direction. I can't decide if it's a weakness from his fracture pelvis or if it's laziness or even off balancedness. I know that he's not underneath himself and he's a little more strung out in that direction. Sometimes he comes down to a trot in the backend. If I don't get him to work through it in the next couple months (we arent moving real fast w/ the lope - taking our time) then I'm going to have the vet check him. I havent decided what the issue is there... He is definitely screwie in that direction though....

    Riley's adorable - I love your dismount

    The only thing I have is his poll gets a bit low going to the right while at the jog.

    The dismount was fantastic!!!! Very cat-like!!! You're so darn cute Jen!!!!

    Yall are cute together...but he needs to slow down at the jog and lope...try to relax your seat...at some point in the lope you were leaning too fra foward. Your leg should be under you more and lower your hands. Thoes are easy fixes you will be picture perfect in no time!!! Good luck
